Former mountain bike coach Tim Heemskerk is set to join the performance staff of LottoNL-Jumbo.

Heemskerk is a human movement scientist that arrives to the Dutch team with a full-time appointment aimed at strengthening the coaching and development department. "Being a part of the performance team of one of the best teams in the world is fantastic", he commented.

"Improving athletes through training and coaching based on science is my passion. I had that opportunity with other teams, but with Team LottoNL-Jumbo it felt right immediately. The way in which riders are being trained appeals to me: improving together, every day."

LottoNL-Jumbo welcomed this arriving to the team. "With Tim, we can give our riders even more attention and guidance from highly qualified coaches who work according to our philosophy," said sports director Merijn Zeeman.

Heemskerk was an amateur cyclist and took part in mountain bike World Championships. After that, he worked for seven years with the Dutch Cycling Federation as national coach of the mountain bikers.

Currently, he is self-employed and works as a coach of the American cyclo-cross riders attached to USA Cycling and he will combine that job with the one at LottoNL-Jumbo until the end of January.
